So you’re going to tie the knot, engagement card

Some friends of mine have become engaged, you know who you are.

Naturally a card is called for, and for some reason I felt the need to make a paper knot card.

It was as simple as tying a knot in a piece of paper, well nearly.

When you tie a knot, one of the tails that sticks out of the knot is reversed so I cheated and cut it off just inside the knot, turned it over and poked it back in the right way around. I added the white paper on top of the silver to give it some texture and I also liked that two different threads papers have been knotted tied together, just like my two different friends, ahhhh.

It’s tricky to photograph metallic paper, so you can’t really tell, but it’s a gold background with silver and white ribbons of paper across it, and yes, I used my favorite aperture cards, a Papermania 240 GSM square card 13.5 cm x 13.5 cms.

Congratulations you guys.
